How to Add Names to Photos
If you want to add a name to a photograph or a notation to remind you of something, you can do so using a program built into the Windows operating system. With Microsoft Paint, a basic image editing program, you can add text over your images. You can add text with either an opaque background (which will make your name stand out more) or a transparent background (where the text will fit into the image more).
Click "Start," "Programs," "Accessories" and "Paint."
Press "Ctrl"and "O." Locate the image you want to edit, select it and click "Open."
Click "Text Tools," then "text."
Click and drag a square over the image where you want the text to go. Type the name of the person you wish to add.
Click "Transparent" or "Opaque" depending on your preference. Save your image using the "Save" menu.
